  • mitsuhoney: They had Kumi on the cover of #654 but the only person in the story of Asian decent was Sheila Wu (which is just as great!) but I was really hoping to see Kumi again! Not a fan of Toni/Jughead and Ethel/Chunk though.

  • mitsuhoney: I dont really like the incest relationship they are depicting in AWA, its very disturbing and sick to be honest. I do love the Nancy and Ginger love affair though, it was a very creative idea.

Archie Comics launches The Archie Babies

  [img align=left width=168 height=252]http://www.mediabistro.com/galleycat/files/2011/03/abgn650.jpg[/img] If you ever wondered what Archie and Jughead were like as toddlers, a new graphic novel will answer all your questions. Archie Comics will publish the early adventures of the red-headed hero.
The Archie Babies graphic novel will carry $9.95 price tag. Mike Kunkel wrote the story and artist Art Mawhinney illustrated. The book goes on sale June 22.
Here’s more from the announcement: “See it all happen from the sandbox to the jungle gym as Baby Archie meets Baby Betty and Baby Veronica. Watch the friendship grow between Baby Archie and Baby Jughead. It’s every bit of the Archie fun you’ve come to expect in a cuter and smaller package.”

Funny- the company that basically invented the "whole gang as younger versions of themselves" concept with "Little Archie" is going all the way back. Are Betty & Veronica still gonna chase after Little Archie? And a whole graphic novel? That's a new idea.

I'm not super excited about this.  I'll check it out, but I can't really see the appeal - I never liked any "Babies" books (Muppet, Looney Tunes, Disney, etc).  It seems like a pretty limited field of stories to work with.
No matter where I go, there I am.  Creepy.

I'm definitely going to pass this up.  I like to stick to just regular teen Archie (and the grown-up one too I guess) with the OCCASIONAL little Archie.  But Archie babies....no thank you.  This is like the newest World of Archie where they meet the Tiny Titans or whatever.  I saw it at the newsstand where I usually buy my comics, but when half of the double digest was full of that, I immediately put it down.

I'm fine with this coming out as long as they don't try to "canonize" it.  I think the idea that all the character relationships existed while they were in diapers is a bit too ridiculous.

I'd be okay with it as long as they don't make it too much like a Rugrats clone.

Pass.

I much prefer the characters as very late teens or early twenties. Heck, I read a fairly recent (maybe a year or two old) story where Mr. Lodge's dialogue indicated Veronica was 16, and THAT'S too young for me.




Betty Cooper + Cheryl Blossom. It's inevitable.

The more I think of this, the worse of an idea I think it is.

First - what "baby" series has ever been successful in print? 

Second - Who wants to read about babies?  *maybe* it would work on TV, but anyone that can read is probably beyond babies.

Maybe it's going to be marketed to really young children? LIke below 8.  I don't know. XD

Well maybe.  What age do kids start reading now?  My kids read baby books when they were.... Babies.  At about 4 years old, they got offended with anything "baby"

Wasn't that what the Little Archie title was for?

No, I don't think so.  Maybe the later ones, though.  I'm pretty sure it started out just to show what a younger version of Archie and the Gang would be like.


I have so many Archies, I've lost count!  :D

I really don't know what I think about this. I was never really into Little Archie so I doubt I will take to this as well.

I've always liked Little Archie - particularly the early Bob Bolling stories - but this seems rather silly at best.
